Aspiring young women footballers from UAE meet Manchester City heroes – video | Football
Four young and aspiring female footballers from the United Arab Emirates were thrilled to receive a personal message from the England Lionesses Chloe Kelly and Lauren Hemp, and Australia’s Hayley Raso, inviting them to Manchester as match-day mascots for a Women’s Super League fixture. Madiyah, 12, Meriel and Sura, both 11, and Zarah, nine, all attend Manchester City Football Schools in the UAE. As part of the experience organised by Etihad Airways, the young female players enjoyed behind-the-scenes access to Manchester City Women’s final training session before the match and had photos taken with some of their role models from the club. One girl said, ‘this is going to be us one day’ as they watched the team train.
